Who will be FC Bayern next summer? If it were up to Joshua Kimmich, he would certainly include a shooting star from Leverkusen to the newcomers.
Update of November 17: Sports director Jonas Boldt assumes that the Supertalent Kai Havertz, Bayer Leverkusen, Bundesliga football team, remains for a long time. "There is no reason to be restless, your future is in Leverkusen," Boldt told Sport1.
Havertz, 19, still has a contract with Bayer until 2022. However, the midfielder is interested in several European clubs. National player Joshua Kimmich called Havertz after his strong appearance in the international game against Russia (3: 0) as "one for Bayern."
Boldt remains calm. "The club, the players and the environment have agreed that Leverkusen is the right club, so logically there have been no requests," Boldt said.
First report of November 16: Kimmich attracts Havertz to Bayern: "I can not buy it, but …"
Leipzig – The German team was almost unrecognizable. At least not in the first semester. Opponents Russia did not know in places this Thursday night, where front and back is. With 3: 0 he won the DFB team at the Red Bull Arena in Leipzig against the hosts of the last World Cup. Of course, a victory in such a friendly match should never be too high, especially as the opponents of Russia had to give up some of the best performances.
However, this game showed what is possible with the next German generation. Leroy Sané, Serge Gnabry and Joshua Kimmich have the potential to bring the 2014 World Champion back to the main countries. But one of them stood out especially that night: Kai Havertz. The Leverkusen player prepared the third goal of Gnabry as an example and also made a strong game in another way.
Teammates Kimmich, who pulled the strings in midfield along with the 19 year old, were thrilled. And so much so that brought the same time to Havertz FC Bayern for the conversation.
Joshua Kimmich: "Kai Havertz is a player who would serve us well"
Kimmich was in the mixed zone just after the final whistle. And then it came, the matter of this highly predisposed Havertz. Would not it be something for the FCB? "I can not buy it, but Kai Havertz is a player who would serve us well," Kimmich said. Furthermore, Havertz "was the best man on the pitch," said the Bayern defender.
It is best that Uli Hoeneß recently announced a major change in the team next summer. Stars like Franck Ribéry and Arjen Robben are expected to play their last season on Säbener Straße and other pros can leave Munich in the summer. Clear message from Hoeneß to the team: In the summer, it will be looked at, who is still good and who is not.
The Havertz is good for what? For sure. If you believe the many reports from England and Spain, half of Europe is interested in the midfield player. No wonder? Even at Bayer 04, he plays a lot, although his team runs behind, especially in the league of their own claims. With 11 scorer points in 16 games, Havertz has an important role in not looking worse for coach Heiko Herrlich's team. And everything with only 19 years!
Kai Havertz: Arsenal and Barca interest
Among other things, according to the mirror FC Arsenal Kai Havertz in the list. Also FC Barcelona looks like more than half an eye in Leverkusen. After all, not only since this season is it known that a real gem is growing there. And jewelry has its price, of course.
The owner's contract runs until 2022, an exit clause does not exist. Means: If you want to get Haverz from Leverkusen, you should go deep into the bag. There is talk of a three-digit amount. As the interest is correspondingly large, the Leverkusen can expect a competition of European heavyweights.
If FC Bayern will belong to continues to be seen. If it were for Kimmich, Havertz would wear the Munich dress next season.
